Theatre 55, PIPPIN

PIPPIN Auditions: July 8, 9, 10, 2019. Theatre 55 is a new theatre company which focuses on adults over 55 as its primary artists and performers. January 31, 2019 marked their inaugural production of the 1968 smash musical sensation HAIR, performed by those who lived it!—Because of the incredible success of HAIR, Theatre 55 is honored to present PIPPIN, Our Corner of the Sky - directed by Richard Hitchler, choreography by Sandy Agustin, and musical direction by Jill Schendel. Told by an ensemble of actors, PIPPIN is the story of a prince, who is searching for his purpose in life and his own “corner of the sky.” Encouraged by the Leading Player, Pippin dabbles in bloody battle, licentious entanglements, and saavy political maneuvers, only to discover that true happiness is more complicated than it appears. With infectious music by Stephen Schwartz and classic choreography from Bob Fosse, PIPPIN is both a humorous allegory and a dark tale of false appearances and empty promises.  “We all look for the true meaning of life, and more-so as we enter the latter half of life. PIPPIN is a great story that exemplifies that desire.”, -Richard Hitchler, Artistic Director of Theatre 55.  Performances: September 13 - 29, 2019 TICKETS: Tickets are $25 for all but the senior matinee.   Senior matinee on September 18 at 1:00pm (Tickets $15 for this event only).   WHERE: MIXED BLOOD THEATRE, 1501 S. 4th Street, Minneapolis, MN 55454.  Theatre 55 Website:
